Product Description:

PreS-Gr 1—Peggy the hen likes her routine. When a windstorm blows her out of her decorative suburban chicken coop, she has to adjust to the unfamiliar sights and sounds of a busy city. She tries on shoes, eats popcorn at the movie theatre, and makes a cosy nest in a furniture store. Although she isn't able to communicate with anyone in the crowds, Peggy eventually finds her way back home by following the trail of a bouquet of sunflowers and, later, a flock of pigeons. Walker's ink and photo collage illustrations are dreamlike in appearance. Admirers of Janet Morgan Stoeke's "Minerva Louise" books (Dutton) will relish the chance to meet another charming chicken.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
